The Mortal Instruments – Coming Soon to a Theater Near You?

From http://www.nextmovie.com/blog/mortal-instruments-to-start-filming/ “Pre-production on “The Mortal Instruments” has been quite a roller coaster ride, but source material author Cassandra Clare says things are getting back on a steady track. Today, she took to Tumblr to share the news that shooting for “The Mortal Instruments” will begin, finally, on August 15. This tidbit comes on the heels of a shake-up that happened last month when Sony […]

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Book): Chan’s Review

Since the movie comes out March 23rd (SQUEE), I figured it would be appropriate to do a series of reviews based on The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins.  Granted you can read this first book in the series and wash your hands of the rest but if you’re like me, you gotta finish what […]

Already Excited for May! – The Avengers Movie

Marvel movies are abundant these days and I couldn’t be happier about it: some come out bad, some good, some AWESOME, and some you pretend you never heard about (cough cough… Wolverine: Origins).  Personally I am biting my nails over the upcoming Avengers.  Robert Downey Jr. was badass as Iron Man, and Chris Evans was […]

Chronicle – Movie Review

First off, I have to mention the unique style this movie was shot in: starting in the first person and moving to a mix of third and first towards the climax and end.  This has been attempted before with horror movies (The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield), action movies (The Bourne Ultimatum), and many more […]

Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Movie Review

Part one of the 4th book in the Twilight series.  So I am a little late with this review, but being a fan of the books I was disappointed in the last rendition so I waited for the video copy.  I have to say the acting definitely improved with Jacobs’s actor Taylor Lautner topping the […]

San Diego: North of the Airport?

As Comic-Con 2012 news becomes apparent – membership IDs, guests, masquerade, etc. – we all start to think about San Diego and its magical convention in just a few (5?) months.  The famed convention center, the plethora of hotels around it, and of course the Gaslamp District.

Animeland Makiba 2011: Chan’s Recap

Animeland Makiba is a local convention here in Las Vegas, Nevada that occurred over Labor Day weekend.  This year it was located inside Palace Station (I-15 and Sahara).  It is a small but fun and intimate convention which really allows you to make some friends, talk to guests casually, and overall have a nice, positive […]

Conan the Barbarian 3D – Movie Review

With a stroke of luck I was able to attend a special screening of Conan the Barbarian in 3D before the movie hits theaters this Friday, 8/19/11.  To be completely honest, I have no recollection of the original Conan story.  My girlfriend Calais that went with me remembered bits and pieces but both of us […]

South Park – Year of the Fan Experience: Chan’s Review

South Park seems to be one of those shows that people either love or hate. Admittedly, there are some extremely crass moments in the show, but over the years it has really matured into some upscale crass. Famed episodes like “Make Love, Not Warcraft” and “Trapped in the Closet” have really brought it out into […]
